Isn't it a case several of Qatar's 787's have been grounded???
Maybe the aircraft scheduled to operate this flight was one of them and replaced with the 77W, being the only aircraft available...?
Might not be the case, but I would imagine there is a lot of people travelling on the New Years Day, as people need to get home and ready to return to work for the 2nd January... Maybe the 6.25am flight has got a higher demand than normal, with a lot of connecting passengers.
